Special Edition Podcast

Talksplode #35 with Skottie Young of Oz of Ozma and the Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Show Notes

Running Time: 01:07:17

We've known and been big fans of Skottie Young for a long time, but he's never actually been on a Talksplode episode until now. Josh Flanagan talks with the Eisner winning artist about his career and origin, as well as how it lead to the offbeat series of books like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, and Ozma of Oz, with writer Eric Shanower. We talk about some of the work Skottie has done for Marvel Comics over the last ten years, and how C.B. Cebulski picked him from a random table at a Chicago comic convention. Then we talk about Skottie's creator owned work, and his push to sell digital material on his own, as well as his upcoming writing stint in Deadpool Team Up.

    Is it just me or did Josh sound sad (bitter perhaps) throughout that interview? It’s ok Josh, you’ll get there ;-) You ifanboys already have the life, doing what you love day in day out.

    Skottie Young is one lucky and extremely talented SOB – just started reading Oz – freakishly awesome art!!!!!!

    His new sketchbook is great!

  9. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    @BALD  It was just you. If anything, I was tired. We did it late at night. Skottie’s a buddy, and I guarantee you I didn’t have a trace of bitterness in that conversation.

    @josh  Just stirring you Josh – you know I love you guys.
